Het lettertype, hier gedrukt met oude houten biljetletters, heet Hidalgo. Over dit lettertype las ik eens: Hidalgo “is the type a designer needs every time he wants to smash a word into the page as a brick through a shop window: it is heavy, compact and has the effect of calling everybody’s attention. It is a considerable aid to the designer that Hidalgo gives such strongly marked horizontal lines.”
